What I bought – May 2014 selections

“The novel I would most like to read at this moment,” Ludmilla explains, “should have as its driving force only the desire to narrate, to pile stories upon stories, without trying to impose a philosophy of life on you, simply allowing you to observe its own growth, like a tree, an entangling, as if of branches and leaves …” (Italo Calvino, from If on a winter’s night a traveler)

On the narrow Augesd dam where for so many years the old miller had been accustomed to sit in his tasseled cap peacefully angling, while his grandson, with shirt sleeves rolled up, handled the floundering silvery fish in the watering can, on that dam over which for so many years Moravians in shaggy caps and blue jackets had peacefully driven their two-horse carts loaded with wheat and had returned dusty with flour whitening their carts – on that narrow dam amid the wagons and the cannon, under the horses’ hoofs and between the wagon wheels, men disfigured by fear of death now crowded together, crushing one another, dying, stepping over the dying and killing on another, only to move on a few steps and be killed themselves in the same way. (Leo Tolstoy, from War and Peace)

What I bought – 12 February 2014

“I wish life was like banking,” I said. “I don’t mean it’s straightforward. Some of it’s incredibly complicated. But you can understand it in the end, if you try hard enough. Or there’s someone, somewhere, who understands it, even if only afterward, after it’s too late. The trouble with life, it seems to me, is that it can turn out to be too late and you still haven’t understood it.” (Julian Barnes, from Talking It Over)

“Well, I don’t really know how it feels, because I was so upset over it, but basically it feels like you’ve just tried to kill yourself. Until you almost kill a person you don’t really understand what it’s like to be a human being, how quickly and easily you can die yourself. Up to that point, I pictured life as something that gradually leads to death. And death was a process, something that happened over a period of time, eventually. Now I know that death is a halt. It just happens, suddenly. Life ends. Life just stops, and even if you’re ninety, it still happens right in the middle of your life.” (Jeremy Leven, from Creator)
